Saratoga Springs: Charter Change Recount Loses Court Battle

In the Times Union,  Wendy Liberatore reports “(a) bid to recount the votes cast in the city’s referendum on charter change has failed.

State Supreme Court Justice Thomas Nolan ruled on Feb. 6 that “the petitioner presents no facts to support or justify” a recount of the November 2017 vote because there is no law that requires the Saratoga County Board of Elections to do so when the vote margin is slim.

Gordon Boyd, a member of the now defunct Charter Review Commission, was looking for a recount after the proposal to update the city’s 100-year-old commission form of government was defeated by 10 votes.”
